Condom usage encouraged at North Georgia college

North Georgia College and State University has been urging students to use condoms and practice safe sex.

According to the Saint, which is the establishment's online paper, it held a sexual responsibility week, whereby it tried to highlight the importance of using precautions when involved in relations.

It noted people between the ages of 15 and 24 are the most likely to have sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as syphilis, gonorrhoea and chlamydia.

North Georgia health educator Sarah Williams noted: "We rarely have to restock the condom drawer."

Individuals are being encouraged to use the prophylactic device, as it will not only prevent the spread of STIs, but it can also limit the chances of unwanted pregnancies.

There is plenty of information available for those who want to know more about the options open to them.

It comes after hundreds of Boston teenagers said they want more in-depth sex education.
